“So, the real question with all of these events is how much of the infrastructure that you build are you going to be able to use again and how much of the moment in the spotlight are you going to be able to capture for the long-term;” explained Matheson. “And depending on Olympic games you look at, we have all sorts of different answers here. You have some real spectacular examples like Barcelona which really captured their moment in the sun and is now the number four tourist destination in Europe. On the other hand, you have other places like Atlanta, which is on no one’s top visitation list in the United States, despite the fact that they were the center of the world’s attention for three weeks back in ’96.”
